I have been a member of CD since 2007. One of the beauties of CD is that it is very much like a daytime Soap Opera. You can miss several episodes and pick right up again when you turn on the TV.

Yeah, I tend to agree with you. I've been gone for a long time, and now that I've been on again for the 2-3 days -- yeah, nothing much has changed. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

Thanks for providing a link to that thread. I had completely forgotten about it. Although closed because it became off topic, it provides tons of good information and ideas. I'm going to read it over time leisurely.

I pulled up the Living on a Shoe String original thread not too long ago to post it for someone who was interested in that topic.
Too bad that thread got closed, always thought it was interesting to update old threads. Threads eventually get back on topic, and even offtopic discussions are pretty interesting.

Well what is there to talk about? I’m sure every imaginable topic has been covered once.

And when a new poster joins and happens to ask a question on a topic that’s been covered over and over the lynch mob comes out after them.

“Oh this again” “don’t you know how to use the search function” “this is like beating a dead horse” etc etc

I remember when I first came onto C-D. Wow, I took a beating from a few. I'm glad I didn't quit, tho a few times I thought about it. Who needs getting beat up by a few strangers.
It's a lot better these days.

I started reading and posting as I was planning my retirement and found the whole site to be incredibly interesting and helpful. Ten years into retirement, there are now only a few threads that truly interest me but I'll post occasionally. I got turned off the retirement threads when one 32-year-old started to weigh in on many topics.
